Beautiful pictures and video. Thanks to all who posted.
I have a question regarding the photo pins (don't know what they're called) the Queen is wearing, she has one of her father and grandfather. But I thought they were supposed to wear one of the current Monarch. What is the protocol on this?

Not that I have any clearer idea of what The Princess Royal is wearing... but here is a decent still that I captured from the video if anyone care to venture a guess. I think it looks to be some sort of pearl band in her hair.

Nice cap. Thanks for posting it, Lillibetforever. I think it lends support to my theory she's wearing a tiara around her neck and a necklace in her hair. Why? Perhaps she just likes to be different.

Thanks for the pic, Lillibetforever. It's one of the better photos of the evening, IMHO!
I agree with you, Roslyn. Anne has always danced to her own drummer.... She is no beauty for sure. Too bad she doesn't get help from her mother's stylist. :(

They are Royal Family Orders, personal mementos granted by the monarch. I can't imagine the monarch granting one to herself.

I think that she'd look better with a softer hairstyle. Although, I've often heard it said that she looks much better in person. She just doesn't photograph well.

Royal Family Orders - that's right, I forgot what they were called. Thanks for the info.

Thank you queenofthelight, I do like HM and Camilla's outfits, they are both wearing colours IMO, that become them.
